We are extremely pleased to announce the 12th International Fatigue Congress which will be held in Poitiers, France from May, 27th to June, 1st 2018.

On the occasion of its return in Europe, the Congress will be hosted for the first time in France, and more precisely on the Futuroscope area located in the “Grand Poitiers” agglomeration.


This venue, with its unique mixture of cultural heritage and modernity, will constitute a memorable experience for all attendees.


The Organizing Committee will also help delegates who wish to extend their stay by proposing tours with many outstanding attractions (Chateaux of the Loire Valley, Atlantic Coast, vineyards, ).


The Fatigue 2018 Congress will be the twelfth in a series of major international conferences held since 1981. This series aims to provide a discussion forum for both fundamental aspects and practical applications of fatigue, covering all aspects of fatigue, all type of materials, and all fields of interest (transportation, energy, electronics, civil engineering, medicine ,…).
